A study by leading British body language expert, Robert Phipps has revealed the position we sleep in reflects our mood, stress level and even personality. The research, which was carried out for budget hotel chain Premier Inn, found the most common way of sleeping, The Foetal position (58%), reflects subconsciously trying to de-stress in our sleep. The Log, the second most common sleeping position (28%) sees people sleep with their arms and legs by their side, with the report stating that such a rigid position can lead to individuals being very stubborn and set in their ways.
Parents of two children treat their youngest as the favourite, new research has found. A study of 1,803 parents shows that 59 per cent of the time, parents will subconsciously choose the youngest child over the eldest. In particular, mums and dads are more likely to side with a younger child in an argument, lavish them with more attention, let them have their own way and spend longer reading with them. Younger children also benefit from more treats and cuddles, and their parents find it hard refusing them anything they want.

A passenger plane had to be partially dismantled before holiday makers could fly home from Spain… because of a lost mobile. Bosses insisted that the phone - which had been accidentally dropped into an air vent - was found before the Jet2 flight from Murcia to Newcastle was allowed to take off.
